Muggy Independence Night

A warm(er), moist air mass moved into the region today and will help support cloudcover through the overnight. Expect mild temperatures in the coming days.
High pressure will then slowly build in through mid-week. Temperatures will initially be cooler Tuesday into Wednesday but then head upward inland for the rest of the week. The coast will be a different story as onshore flow will eventually strengthen and likely keep some low cloudcover in the forecast through the rest of the week.


Overnight: Mostly cloudy with scattered mid level clouds and some low cloudcover on the coast. Lows mainly in the mid to upper 50s. Patchy drizzle possible.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy early with patchy drizzle, then becoming partly cloudy on the coast and mostly sunny inland. Muggy with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s on the coast with 70s-80s inland. Winds pick up for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with patchy drizzle in the morning, then partly cloudy and mild with highs in the 60s-70s on the coast and 70s-80s inland.

Extended: Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies on the coast with slightly cool highs on the coast for the remainder on the week while inland areas will be sunny during the day and may see low cloud/fog in the valleys in the mornings. Inland highs will be back to normal by Thursday and then above through the weekend.

HIGH: 69ºF

LOW: 52ºF
